(Hong Kong – 13 November 2018) ChannelE2E, published by After Nines Inc., has named I Consulting Group Limited (“ICG”) to the Top 100 Public Cloud MSP list for 2018 (https://www.channele2e.com/top100).

The list and research identify and honor the top 100 managed services providers (MSPs) that support Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and/or Google Cloud Platform (GCP) customers, according to ChannelE2E’s findings.

“We are honoured to be the only Hong Kong headquartered MSP named as the top 100 Public Cloud MSP by ChannelE2E,” said ICG Chairman Andy Lau. “Customers are looking for the best-in-class solutions and services to drive cloud transformation in their organizations. With our profound cloud expertise, rich experience and strong expert team, we are ready to lead our customers to business success by customising their cloud journeys.”

Top 100 Public Cloud MSPs 2018: ChannelE2E Research Findings

The Top 100 Public Cloud MSP rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s 2018 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSPs featured throughout the list and research provide consulting, migration, optimization, monitoring and/or cost management services for public clouds.

The overall global managed services market now spans more than 80,000 MSPs. However, fewer than 500 of those MSPs are extensively certified to support AWS, Azure and/or GCP workloads, ChannelE2E’s research concluded.

The Top 100 Public Cloud MSPs 2018 list and research is a global report. The honorees include MSPs from 22 countries. The lineup includes:
• 68 MSPs focused on AWS
• 43 MSPs focused on Azure
• 30 MSPs focused on Google Cloud Platform
• Dozens of the MSPs focus on both AWS and Azure, but only six MSPs were honored across all three platforms

Demand for public cloud MSPs continues to escalate as customers attempt to move, activate, manage and optimize workloads across AWS, Azure, GCP and other public clouds. The global cloud managed services market was $23.19 billion in 2016, and is forecast to generate a 15.4 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2025, according to Grand View Research.

“After Nines Inc. and ChannelE2E congratulate ICG on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As customers seek out qualified public cloud partners, ICG has emerged as a leader in this market.”
